Leslie Hughes to Lead Corbis' Newly Consolidated Markets and Products Group; Andrei Lloyd Named Vice President of Corbis and COO for The Stock Market.
NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 5, 2001
Corbis announced today the appointment of Leslie Hughes as president of the company's newly formed Markets and Products Group.
The group represents the consolidation of three formerly separate business units -- professional licensing, consumer, and business communicator -- under a single brand strategy, giving Hughes responsibility for all of Corbis' revenue centers as well as corporate marketing, commercial and editorial photography and customer service.
Formerly the president of Corbis Images, the company's professional licensing division, Hughes will continue to drive the company's dramatic growth in that segment, while also working to ensure the company's success in the consumer and business communication markets.
"The proliferation of digital technology and the Internet opens up some very exciting new markets for photography and other types of imagery," said CEO Steve Davis. "Given the tremendous breadth and quality of the collection we represent, along with the digital delivery systems we've developed, Corbis is in a unique position to capitalize on those opportunities. Leslie has clearly proven her ability to foster staggering growth, and we are supremely confident that she'll succeed in her new role."
The company also announced today the appointment of Andrei Lloyd as a vice president of Corbis and chief operating officer of The Stock Market, an agency acquired by Corbis last year. Reporting to Hughes, Lloyd will manage all operations at The Stock Market, as well as playing a central role in its integration into Corbis.
